Bryce Kurtzman

Bryce’s Arboricultural career began in 2007 where he joined a large company as a machine operator. His enthusiasm for the industry was quickly recognised and he was shifted into a role where he was able to take on more responsibility for the work being completed. He began his career in climbing and began is certificate III in Arboriculture.

Over the years Bryce worked for two of Australia’s largest tree care companies, during this time he gained experience in all facets of Arboriculture.

Arboriculture is a funny industry, Arborists love trees, as is clear when you meet Bryce, but unfortunately, they spend a lot of time cutting them down. This is because many people and industries have a limited understanding of how trees can benefit their properties, as well as holding the misconception that trees, when left alone are somehow dangerous. This fact became a huge frustration of Bryce’s and became the driving factor in him creating Arborspec. A place where tree health was more important than winning the job, where education for the client based on the internationally recognised rules of Arboriculture was the main focus. A place where a tree was not looked at just as an individual, but as a single organism in the broader eco-system that it belongs to, offering shade for the people and structures around it, offering habitat for numerous fauna that call Australia home, offering shelter from wind, rainand damaginf U.V rays, filtering the air being breathed by all, softening the otherwise hard, concreted landscape being too often preferred by mankind.

Bryces love of nature means our clients are able to benefit in ways they hadn’t previously considered. Bryce is an advocate for all Australian native Flora and Fauna, which means his advice to clients, and the work he does on their trees is honest, clear in its description and conforming with all Australian standards, best work practices and with sound Arboricultural backing.

His study of the Arboricultural industry has continued throughout his career, taking park in many Queensland Arboricultural Association run events including workshops on Fungi and TRAQ (Tree risk assessment) training, these are all in support of his further study into the field of Arboriculture where he continues to learn and improve his knowledge and understanding by working towards holding a Diploma in Arboricultre.

Bryces, and therefore Arborspec’s ethos is to provide an ethical, environmentally friendly, eco-sensitive tree care service for people, companies and council areas who want to care for and nurture the amazing natural assets we are lucky enough to have all around us.
